Posted by John Dugan on Monday, October 8, 2018, In : Men's Health 

People may want the funk, but not the chunky white smelling kind. That's right – smegma. Smegma didn't start out as all bad. Smegma is actually the end-result of the body's masterful self-cleaning skills and is an odorific concoction of oil, dead skin cells, and other fluids. However, elves and fairies won't come to clean it up for a man, he has to do it himself. And when he doesn't…it isn’t pretty. Not only does it stink, but it also can lead to infections and embarrassment in more int...

Posted by John Dugan on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, In : Men's Health 

Most men will develop a penis rash from time to time.

A penis rash is so common that most men never think about going to the doctor to deal with it, and it usually goes away on its own when a man keeps up with his daily penis care.

Every man wants to avoid a penis infection, and that’s part of the reason most men adhere to very good penis care regimens.

Men and women often divide themselves into two camps, especially when it comes to health.

Posted by John Dugan on Tuesday, September 9, 2014, In : Men's Health 

The nerve endings in the penis can do great things. When a man is having sex with a partner, the nerves give him no shortage of pleasure. And when he's having a little private time, they can fire off signals of stimulation, too. But sometimes those nerve endings need to send a completely different message. Sometimes, they need to inform a guy about an urgent need for extra penis care.

When the nerve endings send signals of pain, penis irritation is the likely culprit. It's uncomfortable, b...

Posted by John Dugan on Thursday, August 8, 2013, In : Men's Health 

The human body is an efficient machine, capable of handling a variety of tasks without receiving any sort of direction whatsoever.
